President Gerald Ford Gets Swine Flu Shot On April I5, 1976, Congress passed Public Law 94-266, which provided $135 million of taxpayers' funds to pay for a national swine flu inoculation campaign; that's $348,491,686 in 2009 money. Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion (1976 dollars) had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the swine flu vaccine. Makers of the drug were given guarantees from the government to be immune from side-effect lawsuits.

The Jokers Wild I always liked this game show. The Joker's Wild was a popular program that ran on CBS from 1972 through 1975 and in syndication from 1976 through 1986. It is notable for the return to television of host Jack Barry who left TV after the scandal on his 1950s game show Twenty-One. After Barry died in May 1984 he was replaced as host by Bill Cullen. This clip is from a 1979 show. What a quick game!

Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head BJ Thomas B.J. Thomas sings his most famous song, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1970. The hit song was used as backgroud music for the totally pointless bicycle scene in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Milky The Cow Milky the marvellous milking cow from 1978. I didn't know these existed until I discovered this clip. It drinks water and gives milk, useful.

Miss Peggy Guy on The Gong Show Another off-the-wall act from that bastion of culture and good taste called The Gong Show...Miss Peggy Guy from 1976. (As Chuck Barris once quipped, I liked it, but I like faulty plumbing.)

Irene Ryan Since we're on a bit of a Beverly Hillbillies kick, here's a picture of Irene Ryan (Granny Clampett) from her heyday. She looked older than she really was. She died in 1973--two years after the show was cancelled. She was only 70 years old!

Polyester leisure suit The ultimate men's fashion statement from the 1970s: the much-maligned polyester leisure suit! Polyester was first developed by British researchers during the Second World War. It became a consumer item in 1963 when an Illinois chemist named Delbert Meyer came up with a better way of producing the material. The new threads were blended with natural fibers to create clothing that almost felt like cotton or wool but was washable and wrinkle resistant. Cut from rolls of spongy double-knitted polyester, leisure suits came in all variety of colours: earth tones, blues, racing green, maroon, and the entire spectrum of pastel hues. Airless and horribly uncomfortable in hot and humid weather, polyester leisure suits clung to the wearer's arms and legs. The highly flammable synthetic melted when it burned and stuck to its wearer like napalm. Upper-class men were not impressed, and preferred to stick to their genuine wools, silks and cottons. One fashion writer declared, 'Leisure suits were just too democratic. They made everybody look like a bus driver.'
